TWP in the EPIC store
#243

Hm, to bother or not to bother with that Epic store thing…


#244

But we all have that game already. At least once!


#245

Yeah… But still I never expected it to go free…


#246

@RonGilbert, what’s the consequence for you/Terrible Toybox (financial or otherwise) if we would be getting extra free copies if Thimbleweed Park through Epic Games Store?
If it would be positive in any way, I’d be happy to contribute.
If not, I still have my two other copies.

It’s probably neutral.


#248

True neutral, lawful neutral or chaotic neutral? :thinking:


#249

Lawful? :thinking::thinking:


#250

That must be the second most confusing answer I ever got!

In that case I might get myself another copy*, if nothing else it’s good PR (imagine that poor free game which has only 2 downloads) but I won’t make too much promotion otherwise so future buyers pay a larger amount.

* just in case-when GOG calls it a day just as my house burns down

@Sushi Is the Epic store user-friendly-ish? E.g., do I have to install annoying software to register this free spare copy or does some kind of website account suffice?


#252

Yes, it is annoying like hell. Like Steam with some extras just to get on your nerves. :smile:

You need an account and to install a launcher like steam. They haven’t spammed my email so far yet though.

Plus these guys are the ones who unleashed the horror called Fortenite onto the world.

I don’t know… check out their site and decide for yourself. They claim to support developers.


#253

What was the most confusing answer? :smiley:


#254

Do you always have to do that? :smirk:


#255


#256

Sure, but it seems to me that the '99 game Unreal Tournament’s last man standing mode is practically the same thing, just without the Battle Royale aspect of forbidden zones. (Although I understand they effectively swapped it from forbidden zones to allowed zones.)

Also, look at this random search result from 2003:

I’ve long believed that Last Man Standing is a very underappreciated GameType in UT. With ELMS, I have endeavored to add some playablitiy factors to the game to make it more fun.

Were they proved right or what? :smiley:

Alright, I’ve got my free TWP. Not much use of course, but…
